Duality means the Existence of both, Good and Bad.
Without good, bad cannot be understood and without
bad, good cannot be understood.
Each one gives meaning to the other.
Existence supports both good and bad. We can say he is good
or he is bad. When good and bad are both gone is-ness remains.
He is still there. Existence is Non-dual.
Existence is Equanimity. It is like the post in the scale
which supports both pans. It is not affected by the tilt on
either side. So we have three choices. Remain in duality and
keep going either up and down, one moment happy next
moment sad, or choose non duality and discover the balance
which takes one beyond duality, which is of the nature of
All scriptures prohibit us to be bad, i.e. not to do any action
which is below the human dignity. We can choose to do
good action and remain in duality, but we will soon get tired
and also never feel satisfied. The best is to work to discover
the non dual state which through the joy of achievement
leads one to fulfilment, for which the human life is meant.
The Three Choices are:
1. Remain in-active or do prohibited actions.
2.Do selfish actions and remain in duality.
3.Do selfless actions to purify our inner instruments
and then go beyond duality.
